JUST A REMINDER

This was far more than the need to tie a string around the finger, and certainly not something that should be so soon forgotten that it no longer was having an effect on the lives of the dispersed tribes.  The message of the Messiah, Jesus, had reached the “scattered tribes” and effected a transformation inContinue reading “JUST A REMINDER”

A WORLD IN MOTION – PART 3

A star in motion … Wise men in motion … Herod in motion … Joseph-Mary in motion … More wise men in motion … Angels in motion … Shepherds in motion … A Child in motion… And all because God was in motion! A prophetic promise had been made to men by God (Genesis 3:15)Continue reading “A WORLD IN MOTION – PART 3”

A WORLD IN MOTION – PART II

While “a Star” was edging wise men from the East toward Jerusalem, a decree was being enacted by Caesar Augustus to register and tax the folk under his control.  A young couple, Joseph and Mary, in obedience to that decree, headed toward Bethlehem from Nazareth.  Enough is spelled out in the Gospels to give clarityContinue reading “A WORLD IN MOTION – PART II”

A WORLD IN MOTION – PART I

In reading the story of the birth of the Savior of mankind, Jesus, I recalled how God had to put everything into motion so that even simple minded people like me could not help but observe that only thousands of years later there would be the evidence of HIS planned program. There had been aContinue reading “A WORLD IN MOTION – PART I”

SPONGE CAKE

I have many dear friends in Bermuda, my place of birth a few years back.  Among them have been Joel and Jane Madeiros.  Their home has been our home whenever we return.  Jane went “home” to be with the Lord, and I returned for her funeral. At the funeral I mentioned how Jane always preparedContinue reading “SPONGE CAKE”

PITY

We have all faced situations that can be described as piteous.  Jesus had been at the early stages of His ministry here upon the earth.  In Matthew 6 we find Him presenting truths relative to the Kingdom and also healing people who were experiencing physical problems. We have almost little or no knowledge of why,Continue reading “PITY”

FOOL’S GOLD

We were on a short getaway when I experienced my initial contact with “fool’s gold”. The experience was an interesting one, for I had no comprehension of what gold should look like. I was washing my face in the creek to get awake and asked my friend what I was looking at; for in thoseContinue reading “FOOL’S GOLD”

THE CHURCH IN TYPE

… Be filled with the Spirit … Speak to one another in psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, making melody to the Lord. … Giving thanks for ALL THINGS in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to God the father … Subject to one another in the fear of Christ … Wives be subject to yourContinue reading “THE CHURCH IN TYPE”

CANDLEHOLDERS

As I made the decision to use the redwood, it was with the idea that this particular wood comes from trees that stand majestically above most other trees. You may have your own “redwood” doctor, but mine are Dr.’s Florendo, Jilly and King. When it came to nursing care, there was Scott and Barbara. CertainlyContinue reading “CANDLEHOLDERS”

CHRIST WAS BORN

With permission from the author, our dear friend and brother in Christ, Clive Price, we share with you this poem. ‘Twas the night before Christmas And all you could hear Were stories of Santa And his eight little reindeer. The air waves crackled With sounds of the season, But few there were That knew theContinue reading “CHRIST WAS BORN”
